The most despicable American president of the small screen will not have fizzled in the oval office. Finally, it is especially its interpreter that we are not close to revising in television and film productions.
In the wake of accusations of sexual assault that follow one another, Kevin Spacey has been sent by Netflix, which broadcasts “House of Cards”. While season 6, which will be the last, is currently in production, the actor will not even be present in the cast as the platform announces in an official statement: “Netflix will not be involved in any production of House of Cards including Kevin Spacey. We will continue to work alongside Media Rights Capitals during this hiatus to decide which way the show will take. “
Netflix was compelled, by common sense, to cut short any collaboration with the Oscar-winning comedian. Indeed, after the first revelation, eight members of the House of Cards production and filming crew told CNN of various incidents that occurred between unsolicited massage and forced palpations involving Kevin Spacey: “I did not no doubt that this predatory behavior was routine for him “ confided a production assistant.
In the same logic, the feature film “Gore” which Kevin Spacey was one of the main actors, will also be missing from the Netflix catalog. At present, as the Deadline site reminds us, the actor is targeted by a British authorities investigation in a case of sexual assault on a young man in his twenties, which occurred in 2008.
The showrunners are now thinking of a way to keep their fans and the quality of the show without its flagship actor. They will undoubtedly develop a whole new direction with Robin Wright, aka Claire Underwood, whose character remains equally captivating and intriguing.
